Dark Star>Other One>Dark Star>Wharf Rat
From DS to TOO is possibly the smoothest, most seamless transition they've every done. The music gradually sounds less like Dark Star and more like the Other One, until Jerry finally plays a definitive key change riff. Even after that, there are still moments where you'd think they might slip back into Dark Star, until Phil starts playing some full-on Other One runs. The lack of his standard intro only makes the jam smoother. The transition back into Dark Star is so sweet it gives me the chills every time. Get the DVD and see Jerry's intensity and how utterly locked in these guys are.
